Last week you had to basically be living under a rock not to have heard all the buzz about Little Big Town’s song Girl Crush. Unfortunately, the hype wasn’t because it’s an amazing song but rather it came about for a different, completely sad reason.

Sara Evans describes her new album as confident and sexy. I believe that’s what she was going for with the cover. Unfortunately, she’s a bit off the mark. Confident and sexy would be the photos included with her greatest hits package. Those photos are classy, and an unproven cure for erectile dysfunction. The new album cover begs the question: “Where’s the pole?”
I've heard from various fans that they think all us media folk are being mean and unfair to Trace Adkins after he recently entered rehab. I'm not exactly sure why they feel that, but anytime a celebrity comes under media scrutiny there are always the fans who react like mama bears. It's just the way it is.
Honestly, though, I can't think of a single story I've read where anybody has been anything but respectful to Trace. I'm not talking TMZ, they're never kind unless you're a Victoria Secret model in a bikini, but from everyone else I haven't heard name-calling or anyone making fun of Trace for entering rehab or anything else that might be deemed cruel. I just haven't read anything. Yeah, okay, TMZ released the pictures of Trace and his cruise ship argument recently, but I'm sure we all knew they would. But even those pictures were nothing bad, they were just pictures of an incident that people are interested in.
Here's the thing, though. It's sort of the celebrities and Trace's friends at this point who are keeping us talking about this story. Once the pictures came out on Monday, I think most people were ready to move on. In fact, I think most people were ready to move on from the story once they heard that there wasn't an actual knock down, drag out fight like it was portrayed at first and instead it was just Trace getting in a guy's face. People had a little fun with the whole Trace fighting with his impersonator side of things, but after the first day and once the truth started trickling out, I think most people were ready to move on to the next story.
On Friday, The Tennessean ran a photo on their Facebook page of Wynonna Judd, someone who I've always respected in the past, showing off her hand that had notes written on it. Turns out they were notes for the national anthem as she was performing the song at the Vanderbilt game that night.
Wynonna shows national anthem 'cheat sheet' at Vanderbilt game http://tnne.ws/1cokCqR . Would you rather an artist have a cheat sheet or mess up the words to the national anthem?
Many people had opinions on the subject and there are loads of comments on the picture, both good and bad. Skip ahead a day or two and in comes Country Music Tattle Tale who ran a story with the headline: "Wynonna Judd uses cheat sheet to perform national anthem."

Oh Luke. Why.
If this is the first criticism of Luke’s new musical
direction you’ve heard, then you haven’t been particularly observant. Plenty of
those on social media are up in arms about ‘That’s My Kind of Night’, and with
good reason; Luke’s gradual selling out to the height of the mainstream and
every trend that passes through it is something that has troubled many a Luke
fan, including myself. Not that I’d really count myself as much of a fan these
The most common criticism has been of the music’s lack of
substance. ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ is certainly not where Luke’s musical substance
demise began, but it’s definitely where it came to a head. For the country fans
who lap up every tailgate, cut-off jeans, tanned legs, ice cold beer, pick-up
truck, moonshine and random car sex (like is present in this song), well you
probably love this stuff and can’t understand the fuss. “So what?” You say. “This
is what country music is”.
